Swallows Move Up To Fifth 19/01/2003
Moroka Swallows have come back from the shock of losing an early goal to beat Premier Soccer League strugglers Hellenic 2-1 at the Rand Stadium on Sunday.

After Daniel Matsau had given the Greek Gods the lead after just four minutes, the home side hit back with second-half strikes from Jermaine Christian and Lucas Sebone to claim all three points.

The win moves The Birds up to fifth in the table, five points behind leaders Orlando Pirates but having played a game more. Hellenic are still firmly entrenched in the battle to avoid the drop and are one point above the relegation zone.

The game was given the extra edge as Swallows boss Gavin Hunt is a former Hellenic coach and would have been desperate to put one over his former employers.

Things looked bad for Hunt early on though, as Matsau expertly beat Greg Etasia in the Swallows goal to give the visitors the lead.

Swallows always looked the most likely to score next and it was just a wonder it took the 65 minutes to do so, Jermaine Christian's thunderous 30m drive going in off Hellenic goalkeeper Jason Barnard.

From then on in there was only going to be one winner and it was no surprise when   Lucas Sebone scored the winner on 76 minutes.

Gavin Manuel's shot was blocked by Barnard and Sebone was there to knock in the loose ball.
